Agricultural shows and events are a time when people involved in the agricultural value chain get to meet one another, to network and to find out about the latest technologies and trends. A number of these events occur in South Africa, and we have listed many of these.
The chapter is in no way the full picture, and the reader is referred to the agricultural weeklies, Landbouweekblad and Farmer’s Weekly, or their websites to find a calendar of the latest shows. Visit www.landbou.com and www.farmersweekly.co.za.
Some agricultural role players like the Agricultural Business Chamber (Agbiz) keep their members informed of agricultural events through their newsletters or on their websites.
